Met Expectation Usage? envelope selection for business mailings and to match envelopes to card orders from clients Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.
  • By Alicia (Industry: Graphic Designer) on May 28, 2014 Verified Buyer
I liked the swatch booklet, BUT the big downside is that it doesn't have hex or pantone colour codes for colour matching. It's a little difficult to design an invitation on the computer and then hope that the envelope or paper I'm ordering is the closest match. Adding hex, CMYK or Pantone colours to the booklet, will easily remedy this. Met Expectations? Met Expectation Usage? Invitations Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.

    Printing Options Explained

    One Color Printing:
    One color printing means that your design contains only one ink color. Gray scale designs, contain a range of grays, and is also considered one color printing

    Two-Color Printing:
    Two color printing means that your design contains two different ink colors.

    Full-Color Printing:
    All print designs with more than two colors require an ink process called full color printing, which is also known as CMYK. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (key means black). These four ink colors can be combined to print an unlimited number of colors. Remember, if your design contains more than two colors, select full color.

    White Ink Printing:
    White ink is a special, unique ink that prints best on darker colored papers and stocks. White ink can be printed with CMYK printing if the design contains white and additional color elements.
